Berlim é uma cidade mesmo feia. A primeira coisa que vimos quando saímos da estação foi um vagabundo a mijar para um carro da polícia… Está tudo grafitado, nem se vê alemães, é só emigrantes.

Parece que a decadência da Europa, onde poderia ser de facto a sua capital, é evidente até para um adolescente. Mas há quem goste deste estado de coisas, as cidades e vilas vandalizadas, de cima a baixo, das paredes às mentalidades. Do quanto pior, melhor. Quanto ao vagabundo, não há anarquistas como os alemães… Já os tinha visto das várias vezes que lá estive, o banho por tomar há um ano, com os seus ratos de esgoto de estimação. Gente encantadora.

Thirteen Years After

June Carter

Country singers June Carter and Johnny Cash first crossed each other’s paths at a gig in 1956, and, despite Cash already being married, the connection was instant. Cash proposed to Carter on more than one occasion, to no avail, but on 1 March 1968, thirteen years after first meeting and just a week after he proposed to her on stage during a concert, they finally married, remaining together until her death thirty-five years later. In 1994, on the occasion of June’s sixty-fifth birthday, Johnny wrote her a letter.

June 23 1994
Odense, Denmark.

Happy Birthday Princess,

We get old and get use to each other. We think alike. We read each others minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes take each other for granted.

But once in awhile, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met. You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You’re the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence. I love you very much.

Happy Birthday Princess.

Dear Sir,

Some days ago I received a letter from Mr. Jagger asking me to design a picture or to place at his disposal unpublished work to reproduce on the cover-sleeve for an LP record.

My answer to both questions must be no, as I want to devote all my time and attention to the many commitments I made; I cannot possibly accept any further assignments or spend any time on publicity.

By the way, please tell Mr. Jagger I am not Maurits to him, but
Very sincerely,
M. C. Escher

Most big, deeply satisfying accomplishments in life take at least five years to achieve. This can include building a business, cultivating a loving relationship, writing a book, getting in the best shape of your life, raising a family, and more.
Five years is a long time. It is much slower than most of us would like. If you accept the reality of slow progress, you have every reason to take action today. If you resist the reality of slow progress, five years from now you’ll simply be five years older and still looking for a shortcut.
